Breakfast Recipe: French Toast with Sprouted Grain Bread and Stewed Apples

I love breakfast. It’s one of my favourite times of day and I’m pretty serious about making something special every morning.

On the weekend I like to make something extra fancy and my latest creation is off-the-charts awesome.

I’ve been eating Silver Hills sprouted grain bread for a few years now (and I recently had the chance to write about the company for BCLiving.ca) but had never made French toast with it before.

I don’t know where I got the brainwave from but I’m happy I did because not only does it make delicious, chewy French toast, it’s much better for you than the regular white bread that normally goes into this decadent breakfast.

I wanted to top the toast with some kind of fruit and I had a bunch of apples, so I decided to make stewed apples. They were pretty easy to make and totally worth the effort.

This breakfast has appeared on our breakfast table a few times now and once I didn't feel like peeling and chopping apples, so  I dumped a cup of frozen, mixed berries into a saucepan until they were hot and poured them onto my French toast. Delish!


  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 pieces Silver Hills sprouted grain bread
  • 3 apples, peeled and chopped
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp butter
  • Maple syrup


  1. Add oil to large frying pan over medium-low heat.
  2. In medium bowl, whisk eggs, milk and cinnamon.
  3. Dunk bread in egg mixture so that each piece is evenly soaked and all the liquid has been absorbed.
  4. Add 1 tsp butter to pan and swirl to coat
  5. Add bread to pan and cook for about 4 minutes per side, or until golden brown.
  6. Meanwhile, in medium saucepan, add apples, 1 tsp butter, and cinnamon, stirring well to combine.
  7. Cover and let apples stew for about 8 minutes, or until soft and bubbling.
  8. Top French toast with apples and maple syrup.
